Talk

Sexuality, Desire, and Human Rights

Description

European countries experience secularisation at different rates and in different ways, impacting how each society thinks about sexuality. In this session, Dan explores an influential secular theory of desire that transforms discussion about sexuality. He addresses questions arising from this transformation, particularly in regard to how it impacts appeals to human rights. He also investigates what this change in thinking means for Christian engagement, as well as what new challenges arise, and what new spaces may open up for Christian dialogue with society about sexuality.
